Virtually Exploring the Abyssal Plains
We’re exploring the deep ocean with students and teachers as they go to sea aboard the research vessel Kilo Moana. Even in this time of coronavirus, scientists and students continue their exploration of the abyssal plains, collecting some amazing organisms, and learning about the deep sea food web with the remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Luʻukai.
Join researchers, ROV technicians, Hawaiʻi students and teachers in the EPʻIK program, and undergraduates from across the continental U.S. as we explore the abyssal plains—virtually!
